Entries for March, 2007

Weekend

I will not post new entries this weekend and am putting comments in authentication mode, meaning commenters will have to jump through a hoop to post. Enabling authentication will hopefully discourage drive-bys. For the weekend, here are a couple thoughtful articles: “A note on the future: Deliberately disabling children”

Pro-aborts suppress pro-life free speech

Two events this week spotlighted the truth: People calling themselves “pro-choice” aren’t that at all. They are pro-abortion. They are anti-choice. They do all they can to suppress the free speech of pro-lifers. At a March 27 rally sponsored by liberal feminists in Washington, D.C., to promote the reintroduction of the Equal Rights Amendment, one […]

The inconvenient truth about Terri Schiavo and euthanasia

Many comments to my post yesterday, column today The most obvious thread between abortion support and euthanasia support is promotion of death. The underlying thread is selfishness, i.e., promotion of convenience. Over 90% of abortions are for convenience, either as primary or secondary birth control. Likewise, every euthanasia supporter I read on this blog supports […]

Death Angel vs. Terri Schiavo

This Saturday, March 31, will mark the second anniversary of the death by starvation and dehydration of Terri Schiavo. Too bad she wasn’t a convicted murderer. She’d still be going through the appeals process. Yes, had Terri been a convicted murderer, MSM would certainly have taken up her cause as well, like it did the […]

Nurse

Last night Rae linked to this short film in the comments section of one of my posts with a little zinger, “Hey Jill, here’s a video that might appeal to you. I bet if you were still a nurse and knew you could get away with this you’d do it in a heartbeat.” Well, I […]

I started writing poems with an intentionally flippant treatment of abortion around that scary time before Obama’s second election when Todd Akin was talking about legitimate rape. I was still working on them when Hobby Lobby denied its employees birth control coverage and when Texas Senator Wendy Davis heroically opposed a Republican attack on women’s health clinics.

You know. The horror of it all continues to our current moment. Everyone likes to compare this right wing faux religious extremist push to medieval times, but I wonder if Medieval times were not better for women….

It’s a fundamental human good for a civilization that depends on women in the workforce and as managers of households (which are micro-economies) and agents of their own sexuality have access to safe, medical abortions. If we claim to be a sexually egalitarian society, then duh.

~ Poet Monica McClure, describing how she feels Medieval times were better for women than they are now, in an interview with the Huffington Post, April 16
